Thought for the Week January 1, 2017

I wonder if you have thought about how you will develop your spirit in this new year that is before us. Do you have a regular time of connecting with God? Some call it a devotional time where you express your devotion to Him. Others call it a quiet time where you get away from life’s distractions so that you can hear what He is saying. Whatever you call it, we all need time to connect with God through prayer and His Word.

For the past six months I have been following a reading plan on You Version that has taken me through the Psalms (one a day) once, and through the Proverbs (one a day) about six times. On January 1st, I will begin a plan designed to guide me through the entire Bible in one year. I haven’t read through the Bible in about a year and I am looking forward to revisiting all the history of Israel and of Jesus and the church along with the Psalms and prophets as they come.

As the new year dawns, I encourage you to find a way to be regular and consistent in seeking the Lord in His Word and having a conversation with Him in prayer. It will make a huge difference in your life and maybe even influence others around you because of the changes He makes in you. I can’t think of a better New Year’s resolution. Will you do it? Let’s do it together. God bless.
